The Assembled Human

With The Assembled Human the Museum Folkwang inquires into the ambivalent relationship between humans and machines. It’s a conflicted relationship, fluctuating between utopia and nightmare, and it still influences our present time. From the conveyor belt to cybernetics to today’s digital revolution, the show traces the transformation of technology, presenting a wide panorama of artistic visual worlds: human beings as hybrid creatures, blended with the machines and technology  they have made. Featuring a number of essays, this extensive catalogue goes in-depth into this highly current issue.
